Dinosaur Detectives Trail!

The dinosaurs are back at RSPB Old Moor! This summer, we need some dinosaur detectives to spot all the evidence these naughty dinos have left behind.

Use your trail pack to find footprints, food remains, fossils and more, with challenges to do at each spot.

Look out, because there might still be dinosaurs about! Meet Molly the Oldmoorasaurus on Wednesday and Sunday afternoons throughout the summer holidays.

Packs will be £3 each and available to buy from the welcome hut at Old Moor. Normal reserve entry fees will apply.

Pack your palaeontology kit and have a ROAR-some time!

More about Old Moor:

RSPB Old Moor is South Yorkshire’s best kept secret: a place to spot some wonderful nature, explore and discover with the kids or just walk around in peace and quiet.  There’s lots to do as a family with our new sensory garden, our playground, wild play areas and pond dipping (Easter to October).  Or, discover a hidden gem away from the hustle and bustle to enjoy nature and take a breather; you could even try our Natural Wellbeing trail.  Stop off at the café for hot food, cake and enjoy a hot drink with a view on our balcony with stunning views across the reserve.  Our shop sells a fantastic range of gifts for all ages, wrapping paper and cards and wildlife care products so you can create a nature haven in your own outdoor space and join us in giving nature a home.

Car parking is free.

Accessibility: Old Moor is on the Trans-Pennine Trail so is very accessible locally via foot or bike. Our paths are wheelchair and pushchair friendly and we have mobility scooters available to pre-book for your visit.   We have accessible toilets and baby changing facilities. Dogs are welcome in the courtyard but not on the reserve itself.

RSPB membership: the wildlife conservation work of the RSPB is possible because of the financial support from our members. Members receive complementary free access to our 200+ nature reserves throughout the UK, including Old Moor, a quarterly magazine about the RSPB's work and discounted ticket prices for our events. You can talk to our friendly team at Old Moor to find out more or have a look here: Join us - RSPB Membership.
